Help! My strawberry pie flopped!

I would call myself a seasoned baker so I am baffled about what I did wrong. I got this recipe from a local news station as they are doing a special for strawberry season. The recipe is called mile high strawberry pie. The recipe called for me to puree the berries, then add 3 egg whites, sugar and lemon juice and beat in a mixer (I used my kitchenaid) till stiff peaks form. Well after an hour, I still had a liquidy mess. I do not understand! Help anyone?!?!

My first thought was that they might have meant for you to beat the egg whites, sugar, and lemon juice together until stiff peaks form, *then* gently fold in the pureed strawberries.
Just an idea.
